Article by Christian A., on June 21, 2014

If you want your 2014 Hyundai Tucson to be noticed wherever you go and also survive the zombie apocalypse, the Korean manufacturer announced that The Walking Dead Special Edition just arrived to the dealerships. The vehicle was first unveiled back in November at the LA Auto Show and celebrates the 10th anniversary of The Walking Dead graphic novel series.

As you can see from the photos, the 2014 Tucson The Walking Dead Special Edition comes with an Ash Black exterior that features red accent graphics package and Special Edition exterior and interior badges.

The new roof rack cross rails provide additional room for your survival gear in case of an apocalypse, while the mudguards and custom floor cargo mats keep the vehicle clean. Inside, Hyundai offers a custom Zombie Survival Kit – a Walking Dead 72-hour survivalist’s backpack and a Walking Dead Tucson Quick Reference Guide, to help utilize all the features in the Special Edition vehicle.

Moreover, the Tucson offers vehicle decals for the four factions featured in the series: Hilltop, Kingdom, Saviors, and Survivors, so owners can proudly display where their allegiances lie. Under the hood, there is a 2.4-liter Theta II Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine generates 182 hp (135 kW) and 177 lb-ft (240 Nm) of torque.

The engine is bolted to a six-speed automatic transmission. This special edition of the Tucson is available only with an AWD system. Other features include the LED taillights, dual automatic temperature control and a premium audio system with HD Radio technology.

“Working with Hyundai to create this limited edition Tucson is a great way to continue The Walking Dead’s 10th Anniversary celebration,” said Robert Kirkman, author and creator of The Walking Dead. “I’m excited to see the streets taken over by these cars.”
